Descriptive Essay of My Watch My article of clothing is with me at all times. It consists of a 3cm circular base and two separate straps, each 6cm long connected by a metal clasp. These two straps and a clasp are then connected to the top and bottom of the base. The straps are outlined in hard rigid silver, looking as my uncle’s smoothly brushed gray hair. Through the center of the 2cm wide straps is a 1cm in width gold strip.
The gold looks as bright as a gold chalice from my local church. The clasp is a hard silvery gray such as that which borders the straps. The letters ‘SEIKO’ are clearly placed on the clasp in raised lettering. The clasp looks 3cm long when in the closed position, but when opened it extends to 11cm as two more 4cm metal pieces open outward. The face of the object is encircled with a gold color, gold as the trim on my father’s Cadillac. Inside the gold trim, the background is a black color. The black is like the black rubber on my car’s Cooper tires.
Towards the top of this face, there is a number 12, the bottom has a number 6, and the leftmost number has a number 9. Each of these numbers are raised in lettering in a gold color. On the rightmost side, there is a 1/2cm x 1/5cm sized box. This box is then further separated in two parts. 2/3s of the box is devoted towards showing the current day’s first 3 letters, now showing a THU for Thursday.
The remaining space of the box is set aside for the date of the month. In this box the number 14 is shown. Both, the day and the date, are in white colors. This white is like a white hospital gown, starched and cleaned. The face of the object has 56 small lines all facing from the outside of the circle towards the middle.
These gold lines are equally separated all aro the face of the object. There are 4 places where there is no line, instead a white dot exists. There are 8 more gold lines, very similar except 3 times longer (1/2cm) equally spaced around the face as well, with the exception of the numbers and the small box which are counted as well into the spacing. From the center of the watch are 3 thin strands of golden color rods, just like a strand of goldenrod colored growing wheat. This object has been with me for almost 4 years now, at my side during formal functions and school.
Originally as a Confirmation present during Gradeschool, this has been a constant reminder of my past accomplishments and a reminder that God is with me wherever I go. As others see me wear my object, they realize I have style, yet I do not have my object wherever I go for some people may be offended by such an expensive piece. I do enjoy the simplicity of it, there are no special buttons or other such things to confuse its main purpose. The purpose of this object, which is my watch, is to make sure I’m on time for events and occasions. It has done that for 4 years, and will continue to for as long as I keep it.
